On Wednesday, November 20, 2019, in honor of International Education Week, IRIS is pleased to offer World Appreciation Day 2019: A Celebration for Middle Schoolers. This half-day mini conference will be held on the UW-Madison campus and, in 2019, is open only to middle-school students and teachers.
World Appreciation Day 2019 is taking place in Union South, from 8:15-12:15, and will feature a variety of presentations that will highlight the richness of the world’s cultures. There will be a session featuring tiny classes in a number of foreign languages, as well an opportunity to speak with representatives of various globally-focused UW-Madison offices.
Each school may bring up to 30 students. There is no charge for schools to participate in World Appreciation Day and some financial assistance to help defray the costs of transportation to/from Madison (for schools outside of Dane County) may be available.
Pre-registration for “World Appreciation Day 2019” is required. Please register HERE.
Due to high demand, we have moved up the priority registration deadline to noon on Monday, November 4. After this date, we will continue to accept registrations (through November 12th) as space allows.
*Please note that a REFUNDABLE $100 deposit, paid by credit card, is required at the time of registration.*
With questions, please contact Nancy Heingartner, IRIS Assistant Director for Outreach, firstname.lastname@example.org; 608.265.6585.
